Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In Canada – October 2015 YTD


2015 Lexus NX200t silver

37% of the vehicles sold by Toyota Canada’s premium Lexus brand in October were NX crossovers. The NX debuted last Christmas to positive reviews but quizzical looks – it is a strangely styled beast.

But with the RX transitioning into fourth-gen form, the NX is hitting its stride, finishing only 12 sales back of the Audi Q5 in October 2015, enough to rank second among premium brand SUVs and crossovers last month.

The NX, Q5 and their 13 small premium utility cohorts generated 8.5% of all SUV/crossover sales in Canada in October, up from 7.9% in October 2014 and 6.3% in October 2013.

Their larger, three-row siblings aren’t faring poorly. Canadian sales of the Infiniti QX60, Land Rover LR4 and Range Rover Sport, Lexus GX460, and Volvo XC90 have all increased through the first ten months of 2015. So too have sales of the BMW X6, Cadillac SRX, Mercedes-Benz M-Class/GLE-Class, and Porsche Cayenne.

With two months of sales reporting remaining, the Audi Q5 is the most popular luxury utility vehicle in Canada, 482 sales ahead of the Acura RDX and 1101 sales ahead of the Lexus RX.

GCBC isn’t here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better. This explains you’ll see the XC70 listed with luxury cars as well as with SUVs and crossovers and the Touareg with luxury SUVs and mainstream SUVs… because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
